Georgia Summers

Georgia Summers

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

 

Georgia Summers

 

 

Georgia summers

were as piquant as

a mint julep in July.

Languid days of skinny-dipping,

where temperatures were as high as

the traversing of hands

 underneath a skirt

of fettered gauze.

Such a sweet, soft sensuality in these reflections in liquid summer lights... Okay... Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia... A beautiful world just around the bend... :)

i don't know about "mint julep" but this piece of poetry leeds my mind somehow to Sally Mann and her children summer pictures. It could be harmless but who knows? Maybe there's a dirty little secret behind. For me this is a very special Poem.
